Recycled Note Of The Week: JustUsWomen

Every week or so we use this space to feature a recycled note or three from some of our favorite online sources. This week’s Recycled Note Of The Week comes via JustUsWomen’s etsy shop. While I was browsing her shop I was instantly taken by the simplicity and creativity in her stationary sets, comprised of repurposed paper from various vintage books and paint chip samples.

Tacking and Jibing Stationary Set

Mix and match this set of 4 cards and envelopes. These folding note are cut from 80 lb 100% recycled PC White Mohawk paper, which is manufactured with wind power! The paint chips are slightly distressed to add some texture. The envelopes are made from a book about sailing published 1977.

4 Folding Notes 6 15/16″ x 5″
4 Envelopes 3 9/16″ x 5 1/16″
4 White Round Address Labels 2″
(These labels also make great seals.)

Each envelope has a self adhesive closure.

There are also various other sets in various other colors and envelope designs, so be sure to take a look!

As a bonus to this week’s recycled note, I stumbled on these awesome and functional card cases from SoSheSews created from recycled and repurposed plastic grocery bags.

Pretty rad, right?
